I have a 2003 m1000sie with a lousy seat. I'm 170lbs, and after only an hour my rear has had it. Anyone who has fixed this problem?
Sounds to me like you're ruining the handling in order to solve an unrelated problem. The mods you suggest will make it a sluggish handler.Raised the forks so the top of the ubes are even w/ the top of the TT, now need to try lowering the back a bit...
Well, you bicycle guys_will_feel spoiled if you've got a seat larger than a cell phone........ ;D
I knew guys in college that raved about how comfortable their Brooks leather saddles were. As far as i was concerned, those saddles were only slightly softer than a 2x4. They claimed the saddles broke in to the shape of their butt. I always laughed and said it was the other way around.
I've got a Cannondale MTB (Jeykll) that I paid only a little less for than this used Duc.. Both make me smile and both make me sweat..Don, you wrote;
Now my challenge is maintaining my conditioning. The Monster somehow always wins the coin toss: Monster or bicycle ride, Hmmmm.Two years ago I bought the Duc, and I have been in deconditioning since. Not good! How does one trade a "nice" mountain bike ride for instant Italian adrenalin?
